    Default Deber

    Can I translate 'tuve el triste deber de escribir y publicar la necrológica ' as ' I had the sad duty to write and publish the obituary '

    I had the sad duty/job of writing and publishing the obituary.

    ¿y el derecho y el deber?
    v.gr. 'es ineludible en las Universidades y Escuelas de Ingeniería Topográfica y Geodésica, que tienen el derecho y el deber de conocer y enseñar su Historia'

    My attempt:

    'this must be inescapable in Universities and in Topographic and Geodesic Engineering Schools which have the right and duty of knowing and teaching their History'
